You May Be Poor - Poem by Francis Duggan

You may be poor in the poor side of the town
One financially embarrassed and in spirits down
But for to find one worse off than you are you do not even need a car
Just a short walk from where you live and that is not far
'Tis said we receive from life what is our due
But that life can be hard does remain ever true
So many through life have to battle their way
And millions of poor people in the World of today
You cannot even afford a beer in your local public bar
Yet many so many far worse off than you are
A truly happy person would be hard to find
Such people one might say are of the rare kind
You may be a poor battler your kind are not few
But on saying there are worse off I'm not saying anything new.
